CDT e-NEWS: Tuesday, April 13, 2021

Dancer + Parent Check List:

1) Get your tickets for Invention!

2) Register for CDT 2021-2022 by this Friday, April 16.

3) Send a special message to your dancer in the CDT concert playbill.

4) Sign up to monitor a class at the Capitol Theatre.

We highly encourage dancers who are 16 and older to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Our Tanner Dance staff, faculty, and musicians have all been vaccinated. This is an important way to keep our community healthy as we enter our performing season. Thank you!


CDT Concert Tickets

Pre-sale tickets for CDT families and faculty will be available starting today, Tuesday, April 13, at 10:00 AM, through April 25. During this time, CDT families may purchase two tickets seated together to see the performance live at Capitol Theatre.

The code to purchase pre-sale tickets is: CDT21

Capitol Theatre has arranged seating to accommodate social distancing, and so we have a limited number of tickets available this year. Each CDT family is initially limited to two seats in order to give every dancer the opportunity to have family members in the audience.

Beginning Monday, April 26, all remaining tickets will be open to the public. You may purchase additional tickets for your family at this time, but please be aware that due to the COVID-approved seat map, your family may be sitting in different areas of the theater.

Click the button below to purchase tickets online, or call ArtTix at 801-355-ARTS (2787).

Get Invention Tickets

The performance will also be live streamed on Friday, May 21 at 7:00 PM, and Saturday, May 22 at 7:00 PM. Click the button below to purchase tickets for the live stream.

We still need parent monitors for Capitol Theatre week. Please click the button below to sign up.

All volunteers must complete a background check. Please look for an email from the University of Utah, or from requesting your information.

*For the safety of our dancers and faculty, we highly encourage parent volunteers to be vaccinated prior to monitoring classes.

**Please also note, that due to COVID protocols, monitors will be required to remain with their assigned class for the duration of the rehearsal or performance. Monitors will not be able to visit other dressing rooms or watch other classes from back stage.
